Just because I love your skin
Doesn't mean I'll jump in
The water's clean and warm and green
I'm not allowed to swim
I'm scared of getting in
Batteries and holy ghosts
Buried in my bag of hopes
She said they would help me to grow
Said feeding the stomach is feeding the soul

Spider web and harlequins
Wrapped around your sticky wings
It's pretty but it hurts in my head
'Cause I know that I'm unwell
My body's made of shell
And I know that you can tell
Beat me at my own damn game
Fucking with my goddamn brain
Now I will never win again
Better to love than to have and to hold

I heard that you like to swim
Doesn't mean I'm gonna jump in
But I'll put on my swimming set
'Cause I know I'm going to get wet
I know I'm going to get wet
I know I'm going to get wet
Just because I love your skin
Doesn't mean I'll jump in
The water's clean and warm and green
I'm not allowed to swim
I'm scared of getting in
